Re: DMS Remap M240i

Single remaps are so old school. There will be Bootmod3 type access software for B58 very soon. That’s the route I’d go.

Re: Best Mods to Improve General Handling

Do it right, save and get a Bilstein B16 kit. Adjustable height and adjustable damping. You will thank me later [emoji106][emoji4]

Not noticed this with standard tyres, typically 1.1g.

Re: BMW M2 Offer

Ouch, the high finance cost really hurts that deal.

Probably not far off brand new M2C prices once the early “discount-less” cars are cleared.

Re: BMW M2 Offer

Yes, you can almost do that. I say almost as BMW FS don’t allow a monthly payment below £25. I tried to do the same. Instead I ended up paying all the monthly payments amounts, and carried on paying the £25 a month which was reducing the GFV. I finally bought the car out anyway, but as long as you a...

Re: Adaptive Suspension

Most will say it is a good option, and it probably is if you leave the car standard. However, the dampers on these cars are bought at a price and as a result they are pretty poor for the type of performance of the car. Personally if buying used, I would go with a non adaptive car and fit Bilstein B1...

As long as you have access to e-sys, it is a straightforward coding operation once hardware is fitted. Where are you?

Re: BMW M2 Offer

I would think that reducing the gfv would be counter productive (just in case the car is worth less at the end than the original forecast gfv). I think the best strategy for most would possibly be to accept the reduced payment, stuff the difference in a deposit account. Then every 6 months or so ma...

Re: BMW M2 Offer

If so you could consider one of the following:- 2. As above but make an overpayment of around the amount of contracted rentals (approx 23k). But of course this maintains the gfv but you are paying the expensive interest on that amount. As I've always understood it, if you make an overpayment then a...

Re: M140 questions

1. You’re pushing the wrong button, press the stop/start button. This automatically selects Park anyway. Water cooled turbo, so no need to idle the car. 2. Sport+ allows a fair bit of leeway before intervention steps in. If you are still getting held back, you need to decide which of the two driver ...

Re: BMW Wiper Blades

There is a massive Chinese company that make most blades, even for well known brands....to their own specs, of course.

M135i LCI instrument cluster failure

I think I read this happening on a 3 series. It ended up being the plug wasn’t in properly. But theirs failed whilst driving.

Under warranty? Get the BMW call out team on it.
